NAMING CEREMONY OF NEW MURALS

26 September 2006

On Sunday, 1 October 2006, two of our mural groups will be 'unveiling' and naming their mural.

The Highland Games Group and the South Lodge Community Group jointly briefed the artist Alan Potter for the Highland Games Mural sited on the gable wall of the launderette at the corner of Castle Road and the High Street.

The Invergordon Environment group briefed artist Tracey Shough for the Natural Heritage of the Firth mural which is sited on the gable wall of Albyn Housing Society Limited in Miller Street.

The ceremonies will commence at 2:00pm at the Highland Games mural, followed at 2:30pm at the Natural Heritage of the Firth mural.

PRIZEWINNERS' PAINTING WEEKEND

23 September 2006

In June, primary school children from Park School, South Lodge School and Newmore School were invited to draw a picture depicting the firth. The prize for the winners was the opportunity to work with the commissioned artist Tracey Shough.

The Natural History of the Firth mural came first in the community vote - Invergordon Environment Group were the community group involved in briefing the artist.

On Sunday, 20 August 2006, the twenty-four winners joined Tracey on a nature walk at Foulis Ferry. This was followed by two workshops with Tracey, developing their ideas for the mural: it was the children's idea to place a bird's nest on top of the burglar alarm.

Last weekend, the children in small groups each had one hour on Saturday and one hour on Sunday painting the mural - great fun for them, an experience to treasure.

The mural is sited on the gable wall of Albyn Housing Society Limited on Miller Street, Invergordon
